You turn on your air conditioner, walk through your home, and a minute later you smell something. It immediately catches your attention and won’t let it go: a rancid smell in every single room.

At least, every room in your home with a vent. That odor is mildew: a disgusting fungus that thrives on dark, moist conditions. It can begin in the winter when the heater is on, and get worse in the summer when you turn your air conditioner on.

To vanquish the mildew smell coming from vents, you’ll need professional services. If you want to prevent mildew growth in the future, this is what you need to know.

Portable dehumidifiers are attractive because they’re cheap, small, and can usually fit on your coffee table. Anyone who has used a portable dehumidifier before knows that the inconsistencies and lack of effectiveness really bring life to the old saying,”You get what you pay for.”

How Can You Tell You Need Duct Repairs?

October 3rd, 2022

The ductwork of your home’s HVAC system is as essential as its other major components, the air conditioner and the heater. But it often comes in third in how much attention it receives because it remains mostly hidden from sight. You won’t think of the ducts as needing repairs if you can’t easily see what condition their in.

Ductwork does age, however, and it can sustain damage from construction, temperature changes, vermin, and corrosion. You may at some point need to arrange for HVAC duct repair because your old ductwork has developed air leaks and gapping. Ducts that lose air will harm the energy efficiency of the whole HVAC system as well as its effectiveness, leading to steep costs you wouldn’t ordinarily have had to pay. 

We want to help you notice when you’ve got ductwork in jeopardy so you can avoid these troubles. Below are some warning signs that will alert you to possible duct repair needs.
